again. our computers are beings hacked. this is many times this year. we do government defense work, people are hacking our systems. trying to get our secrets. trying to understand what our government is trying to do to protect ourselves. and the urgency of now me is there are millions of jobs that are available for kids all around this country in the area of protecting our homeland whether it's protecting our secrets, or fighting on battle fields or away. the technology arena is so important. we have saw in the new orleans after katrina, when we lost technology, we lost order. we lost law and order. technology is a huge benefit but a huge risk. there are so many people who want to say that kids just can't learn. some kids just can't learn. so i would say do we really believe kids can't learn? aren't there really opportunities for kids and isn't our security at stake in a lot of other ways other than on the battle field? but in the secret in the intellectual property of the united states and the people who work for us? and when are we going connect these dots? when are we going brea
